An elderly American couple went on holiday to Jerusalem. While they were there, the wife passed away.

The undertaker explained to the husband that…

“You can have her shipped home for $5,000 or you can have her buried here in the Holy Land for $150.”

The man thought about it and told him that he would just have his wife shipped home.

The undertaker was surprised. He asked the man:

“Why would you spend $5,000 to have your wife shipped home when it would be wonderful for her to be buried here and you would spend only $150?”

The husband repled: “Long ago, a man died here, was buried, and three days later he rose from the dead. I can’t take that risk.”
